Din l-Art Helwa has expressed concern that the government is entertaining the idea of constructing a bridge across the Gozo channel.

The government has announced the commissioning of a 15-month study worth 4 million euros to investigate the feasibility of this project described by the NGO as being totally unacceptable.

A bridge between Malta and Gozo would have enormous visual impact, says Din l-Art Helwa, and would destroy one of the most scenic, traditional and beautiful views of the Maltese Islands so important if we are to retain our island quality and sense of identity.
